Louboutin Madame Butterfly

Christian Louboutin Madame Butterfly 150 Leopard Pump

Watercolor 9" x 12" Coldpress

An obvious departure from the fishy subjects so commonplace on my blog, this piece was at the request of one of my female fans.  I have a number of ladies who frequent my site and I wanted to impress them with some "couture" to prove that just because I like to fish doesn't mean I don't know fashion.  I thought the animal print would be a fitting theme on my site, as I know there are some hunters who might like it as well. 

The Christian Louboutin shoe is best know for it's signature red-lacquered heel.  Louboutin is a French designer who's goal is to “make a woman look sexy, beautiful, to make her legs look as long as [he] can.” I would say these red souled shoes do the trick.  Louboutin came up with the red soul almost by accident when he applied red nail polish to one of his shoe designs to make it have "more energy".  Little did he know that he would be creating a cultural icon. 

I wonder if my lady would like a pair?  I suppose that is a silly question.  What do you think?


  1. yes please, size 8...

  2. I'd like to reserve a pair of those too!!! size 8 1/2 pleeezzzeee.....LOVE LOVE

  3. Put a set of treble hooks on that and I would troll it for Togue this Spring.
